I just wanted to let everyone know that if you post photos on this site you should try and cut the size back on them.
Don't take this the wrong way. I am just trying to let everyone know about this.
I just wanted to let everyone know that if you post photos on this site you should try and cut the size back on them. You can do this in any photo program. Take notice that the size of the Elizabeth Morgan photo is 154K. Notice the one below it is 2.8MB. It is 18 times larger for one photo. So you could upload 18 Elizabeth Morgan photos and equal in size the one below it.
So I have taken that same photo and sized it to 1000 x 1000 pixels. Notice the size is now just 249K. This makes it easier to load and view and still be the same viewing size and very good quality.
Can I delete them and repost them. I can do that if it works like that. It wont take me long and I don't mind
Is the concrete marker in this picture https://forums.njpinebarrens.com/attachments/img_0165-jpg.6719/ the "Bear Swamp Reset" benchmark on my map?
Why did they have bathrooms out there? Just to support the fire tower?Here are the bathrooms at Bear Swamp Hill around 1978. I would have to dig out my slides to find the exact development date. You can just see the base of it that are shown in your photo.
And here is one showing the damaged trees about where the plane mostly ended up at after hitting the tower. Again, about 1978 or so.
Somewhat. The Penn State Forest and Bear Swamp Hill in particular was a fairly popular spot for people to visit back then. It was considered a "recreation area" and was promoted as that. The road in from the east was fully paved right to the tower.
Here is a 1949 Whiting Topo.
